December 22

The count down candle with the 24 numbers,-[I wrote about it December 01]-, and the Christmas calender with or without chocolate, are both useful as time schedule for impatient children. But we have another very effective count down; the Danish television Christmas calender. Since 1960 and every year ever since, Danish television have produced a Christmas story in 24 parts, one for every day in December until Christmas. The story always includes nisser – of course 🙂

The story this year is called Nissernes ø ( Nissers island):
As the Danes in 1917 sold the Danish West Indies to the United States and went home, they forgot all their nisser. The nisser (at St. Croix) are having problems with the American Santa Claus, and they ask Nisser in Denmark for help.

After many years with TV Christmas calenders for children (that most parents watched too) we got one for grown ups too. This years calender was made in 1991, it is still very popular and we don´t mind seeing it again.
